So I have a concern , I never witnessed it myself but have been told … that the preschool teacher where my child may go to next year is treating her students disrespectful mind you these students are children with dissabilities (some are not) but she has told her aides she doesn’t want nothing to do with kids with ADHD and 3 yr olds she has been
I've been in marketing for 7 years and it's been primarily paid social analytics and design at a local agency. I want to expand into the world of SEO, but I know its a complex new world for those without experience. Can anyone give me some pointers on where to start and how you got started learning about the basics of SEO? I want to set myself up with a solid base of knowledge from which to grow.
Everyone is getting their offer letters and here I am sitting and thinking what should I do 🤣
Mortgage strategy question: moving from HCOL to MCOL city, selling current house and buying a new one. Will net enough equity from the sale for up to 20% down payment. How do you think about mortgage rates, points, PMI, etc for the new purchase? I'm in favor of putting less down and investing the difference, but not if the terms are worse.
And I'm talking with both a broker and a credit union - is one better than the other?

Hey ladies. My best friend has been dating her BF for over 4 years. She left him today after a pretty abusive night last night. She’s staying with her parents now, but is there anything I can send her to feel better? It’s so hard to see her go through something like this.

My boyfriend suggested I pay more of the down payment for a house when we get married since I make more (~35K) & have been working longer than him by a few years. He’s going to save as much as he can. Is it reasonable id prefer waiting until we can split the down payment 50/50? Or should I put more of the down payment and then we adjust paying off the monthly mortgage? Clarification: we’re buying ONCE we get married!

Our school recently hired a "culture and climate specialist." Does anyone else have this position in their district? Do you feel like it's made a difference?
These kids are really getting out of hand. Just in case you haven’t heard. These are the TikTok challenges by the month.
Agree or disagree? A student with a 504 for an anxiety disorder should be required to go to some kind of counseling for coping strategies if mods are required in the classroom.
Does anyone find themselves teaching live to black screens? it started with one now almost all if not all of my students are turning off their cameras. Do I just have to get used to this? I'd much rather teach to eye contact to know I'm not just talking to myself! Is it just me?
The family everybody knows 😂😂
I need some advice. I work at a school where I enjoy teaching. The students are hard workers but my coworkers and admin suck. I have no friends and the environment sucks. Idk if I should stay or move?
Need an opinion. I just finished week 2. I do an hour after school club at my district once a week on zoom and none of my own schools students participate. I received a very nasty and aggressive email from a parent making threats and hyperbolic accusations so I forwarded the email to the personnel at the district. They were supportive but is still willing to “work together to assist her”. I thought I was pretty vocal that I did not appreciate the way she addressed me and don’t take lightly to
Does anyone find it sad that it’s on the news more about students committing suicide from not being able to attend school then from students who are being bullied to the point they commit suicide?

Many teachers in my district are being told things like If you dont turn in lesson plans, if your lesson plans aren right, if you do your data chart incorrectly ..... you will be terminated. This is not legal. Question is if you get terminated in one district can you go to another district in the middle of the year?

If you absolutely have no other choice but to enroll your child in that class, then be vigilant, and if/when something happens, be the squeaky wheel. Those are babies, and they deserve to have someone advocating for them. If I felt my child's teacher (or any child's teacher for that matter) was being borderline abusive, I wouldn't stop pushing until they were fired. Period.
Yes! The squeaky wheel always has a seat at the table if there’s a concern. We meet w the same parentsmultiple times. You have that right if it’s an educational setting and not daycare.
*im not suggesting you keep stick w this place. Personally, I know myself and I’d be worried sick w that mindset. Peoples mindset don’t change easily!
3-year-olds shouldn't have a formal diagnosis at that age, so she shouldn't have to worry about that.
She teaches 3/4 year olds but will not deal with the 3 yr olds because they are to much for her is what her response was and wil literally take them by thier hand and hand them to her aides . And so much more . I just feel maybe should not been in this grade . At this age they are just getting started and need a good school experience.
I wouldn’t put my child in that preschool. Are there any other options around you? Many of the daycare/preschool centers have multiple cameras now for everyone’s peace of mind. If it’s public school pre-K, then you probably only have to go by other people’s experiences. I don’t like rumors, but something like that would worry me.
It does worry me , being that this issue was discussed by several to the administration. I live in a small rural area I don’t have many school options to choose from . I really don’t follow rumors but when it involves a situation that my child may have to deal with I try to listen and hope the situation changes the thing is it was told in a conversation where someone was mentioning how horrible this teacher treats her students and I was happy to mention my son was going to be going to preschool and this person Stopped and she said Omg No this is the teacher I’m talking about .. my face just dropped . I don’t know what to say or do ?
Teachers of the littlest ones have an awesome responsibility because they are the foundation for those children’s future. NO teacher of Littles should be unkind or disrespectful toward them because even a Little knows when he or she is being “meaned” (I learned this word from a Little ).
ADVOCATE for your baby because at three, Littles are SUPPOSED to be active; they are exploring a whole new world.
Thank you ! All the advice I can get is helpful .
One more thing: Always, always trust your gut when it comes to your own child’s well-being. I had to remove my kids from an in-home daycare, get second opinions for their medical care, etc., etc. Mother’s intuition is really a thing!! You will never regret listening to it—I promise. My kids are now in their 20’s.
Agreed with this. If you are having second thoughts then it is for a reason. You don't want to go against your gut and regret it later. This affects your children.
I would steer clear of this school by any means necessary. This does not seem like a safe environment for a youngster.
I don't understand why people who know they are not patient or like children get jobs as teachers especially a preschool teacher.
The administration has received reports and they still haven't done anything? It's getting very dangerous the way that admin continues to ignore reports until it's too late.
Yes , I agree . Someone needs to look at this situation carefully.
Can you request a different teacher?
That’s so sad! Poor babies! 💕
